Not the best place it's a place for holiday makers so I would give it a miss and keeps changing hands. Some others places around the area are a lot better😕. Try if you want but fish was watery and did not taste fresh

My friend and I stumbled upon this place just by chance one sunny Sunday afternoon, we were fed up of basically eating rubbish and seeing fish and chips! We noticed a lot of people sat outside eating so figured we would give it a go. It luckily was not a disappointment! The young guy serving us appeared to be a... More

One of the best views I've ever had from a hotel room. You can't beat looking out of the window and seeing Scarborough harbour. It's a lovely setting. Parking isn't too handy. As it's out of season we managed to find a free space on the marine drive - but in Summer you might have trouble. Breakfast was OK, though... More

Called in the Ivy House Cafe for lunch this week. Terrible from the moment we walked in. The staff were rude, uninterested and treated us as an inconvenience. On reflection should have walked out but thought we would give the food a chance. As we were waiting a staff member began swatting flies against the wall, killed one, picked it... More

Staff were lovely and room was immaculate. The views we had were breath taking from our room. Loved the security aspect too that not just anyone could walk in and out. Breakfast was tasty and very well presented. Will be returning again. Thank you.

We stayed here for one night, purely for attending a venue at the Scarborough Spa. Staying in the Treasure Chest room. This was a quirky, lovely, clean and welcoming room, with a mezzanine. There is no on site parking, but parked up on the Marine Drive, with loads of long stay spaces. Positioned right on the harbour front, with great... More

We booked to stay at the beachcomber cottage. We made the booking in August 2013 (almost a whole year ago) and received a confirmation email. Just two days before we were due to travel we received a phone call from the owner to say that our booking could not be honoured as she had double booked. We could only be... More
